Walk-in Interview for grant of Innovation Award in National Biodesign Alliance Programme-THSTI
The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Govt. of India has initiated a multi-institutional partnership program on biodesign called the National Bio design Alliance Programme between Translational Health Science & Technology Institute (THSTI), Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB), International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology ( ICGEB), All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Christian Medical College (CMC) Vellore.
This National Bio design Alliance Program will be coordinated by an extramural secretariat established at THSTI which is an autonomous Institute of the Department of Biotechnology under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India. THSTI has been developed as part of the interdisciplinary Health Biotech Science Cluster that will come up in Faridabad within 2 years; the interim laboratories are functioning from Gurgaon.
The primary mission of the National Biodesign Alliance Programme is to promote science and application related to affordable implants, devices, in-vitro diagnostics and imaging. The programme will promote an effective translational route of basic findings ultimately into routine applications of major importance, through a multidisciplinary approach, combining new biomarkers, novel technological concepts and clinical expertise. Major areas of research in the field of in -vitro diagnostics will include protein and antibody engineering, detection technologies and concepts, nucleic acid diagnostics, new clinical markers, decentralized diagnostics (Point -of-Care), bio-organic chemistry diagnostic technologies, bio-affinity test concepts and systems, micro-fluidics, miniaturization, different reporter alternatives and multiplexing. Engineers, clinicians, bio scientists, physical scientists with skills and interests in technology innovation, automation and instrument design, implants and devices, technology transfer activities, and product validation will work together to fulfill the mission of the program.
Walk-in interview is proposed to be held on 25th July, 2012 between 10 am to 5 pm at the above address to fill up the following position:-
